Killing Gaddafi not such a good idea after all ... The greatest punishment for the Libyan dictator would have been incarceration and humiliation ... The late Libyan leader may have been rotten through, not to mention bordering on mad, but his barbaric execution doesn't bode well for Libya's future. The whole point of a revolution is change; hopefully change for the better. – Gulf News
Dominant Social Theme: The butcher of Libya is dead. "We came, we saw, he died," said Secretary of State Hillary Clinton.
Free-Market Analysis: Perhaps the most disturbing element of the death of Muammar Gaddafi was its public spectacle. So many shaky videos of the 60-year-old straggly-haired Gaddafi being punched, shoved, bloodied and even "sodomized" have emerged that we long ago gave up keeping track.
Why is the deliberate public spectacle of Gaddafi's death and Hillary's triumphant reaction to it (see today's video) more important than the deliberate destabilization of Libya itself and the deaths of thousands of innocents? Because it seems to us – as elite meme watchers – that the Anglosphere power elite is setting us up for increased violence the world over, maybe a radical, terrible expansion. We covered this in several articles yesterday: "Obama's Re-Election Model Is FDR" and "NATO Preps for World War?"
